Decay Walkthrough

5. Part 3

Part 3

For those following Billz video guide, here it is:

  • Begin by following the on-screen prompts, which play out as an interactive cutscene. Following this sequence, the game will start proper.

Martin Wallace's Apartment

  • After the scene plays out, look again at the doll on the table. Leave the apartment

Anne Soderlund's Apartment

  • Return to the once-inverted apartment had been at the beginning of the game - Down the corridor to the doorway on the bottom left
  • The apartment now has a door on the right wall. Go through
  • Go through the next door into the bathroom
  • Move the shower curtain which obscures the view of the bath
  • Drain the bath, look at it again and take the shard you find there. Leave the room, the apartment and go all the way back to where you started

Martin Wallace's Apartment

  • Enter the bathroom to where you started the game for the very first time
  • Look at the noose up close
  • Use the shard on the noose to cut it down, giving you a new item: Rope
  • Leave the bathroom and the apartment, and look down the green corridor to where the closet is on the right hand side; the one which was padlocked before. Enter it

The Utility Closet

  • Examine the light coming from beneath the boxes
  • Move the boxes to reveal a hole going to a floor below
  • Use the rope on the hole to give you a means of descent. Climb down

Lower Floor Corridor

  • Go forward and to the door straight ahead. Go in
  • Turn right and take the note on the bed
  • Look at the wooden object on the table. It's the classic wooden labyrinth toy. Puzzle time!
  • Using the on-screen instructions, roll the ball carefully to the end of the maze, making sure to avoid any holes on the way. If you fall into a hole, you'll have to start again (this doesn't void any achievements). Just go slow and steady, it's not difficult at all.
  • When you succeed, take the key from the compartment which opens and enjoy your achievement for completing the puzzle:

Maintenance Area

  • Exit back into the corridor. This time, instead of going straight forward, examine door to the left of the one you went through last time
  • Use the Key on the door and go in
  • Examine the shelf at the back of the room, near the hanged shadow
  • Take the photo and the lighter, then leave the room and climb back up the rope

Martin Wallace's Apartment

  • Return to Martin Wallace's Apartment
  • Examine the bookshelf to the right of the TV
  • Use the photo you're carrying on the bookshelf to apparate the lighter fluid into existence (!)
  • Take the lighter fluid
  • Combine the lighter in your inventory with the lighter fluid to fill it
  • Back out from the bookshelf and look at the doll box on the table in the room

Anne Soderlund's Apartment

  • Return to Anne Soderlund's Apartment - the one that isn't upside down but used to be.
  • Go back through the door and again into the bathroom where the crying figure was before (where you collected the shard from the bathtub)
  • Look underneath the bath and take the note
  • Leave the apartment and go back to the utility closet, climbing down the rope you placed here earlier

Lower Floor Corridor

  • Go back into the apartment you went into earlier at the end of the corridor
  • Examine the fireplace. Light the fire using the filled lighter from your inventory
  • Take handle which appears in the embers, then click on the embers again to collect a lump of coal
  • Combine the paper you collected from this room earlier with the lump of coal to reveal a code
  • Examine the paper and make a mental note of the code
  • Go back into the corridor, and return to the other room here, where the hanged shadow is

Maintenance Area

  • Instead of going to where you collected items off the shelf before, look to your right to find a metal box on the wall
  • Enter the code (147) to unlock it
  • Take the piece of paper to the left of the open box
  • Examine the black hand print on the wall to the right

It's puzzle time, and this one isn't intuitive at all, so follow my instructions precisely!

  • In your inventory, use the piece of paper you've just collected to put it onto the screen
  • Examine the note you got from Anne Soderlund's Bathroom (from under the bath), which shows you the order in which to write into the grid after we've deciphered the symbols
  • Use the coal to begin deciphering the code, making symbols into letters by doing the following:
  • First of all, the symbols: Look at the long row of symbols at the top of the screen. Copy these exactly into the 4x4 grid, going left to right along each row in turn, starting at the top left (just like you would write in English). You should end up with the grid full of symbols
  • Now we translate it! Just click on the letter, on the left, which matches the symbol by clicking on the relevant symbol. Now you have a load of jumbled letters.
  • Finally place them in order per the instructions on Anne Soderlund's note. This time, we got top to bottom THEN left to right - so we're writing in columns
  • It will end up looking like this:

N O E L

O U M A

W A Y V

Y R S E

  • Go back to the open box, click on the place where you can write, and enter the password: NOWYOUAREMYSLAVE
  • Enjoy your achievement for cracking the code, and be thankful we never have to do it again:

  • Take the blade, and exit the scene
  • Watch the cutscene

We now have to repair the doll that was in Martin Wallace's apartment, by finding it's limbs and sticking them back on

  • Go back to the end of the corridor. Where the rope was before there will now be a hook - pull it and climb out
  • Leave the closet and return to Martin Wallace's Apartment and Look at the doll box. It's just a torso and a head, so let's find the rest of it!
  • Go to the end of the corridor with the green flickering light. Doll Piece 1/4 is on the floor to the left of the barricaded door
  • Go to Anne Soderlund's Apartment and look at the sheet covering the bed. Move the sheet to find Doll Piece 2/4
  • Go straight into the bathroom in this same apartment. Doll Piece 3/4 is hanging in plain sight
  • Return to the maintenance closet and examine the box on the left. Open it to find Doll Piece 4/4
  • Return to Martin Wallace's Apartment and examine the doll's box
  • From your inventory, use each limb one at a time to repair the doll piece by piece. Minor puzzle:
  • When you use a limb, it will be placed on the screen close to where it should be attached to the doll. Rotate cn_LS until you find the point where it moves closest to the torso, then rotate cn_RS until it snaps into place. It's not an exact science, so keep making minor adjustments if you get close but it doesn't pop into place. IT's not difficult though, don't worry!
  • Repeat this for all four limbs, repairing the doll and unlocking an achievement for doing so:

Mr O. White's Apartment

  • Leave the apartment, and examine the doll in the corridor
  • Take the Hacksaw frame from the doll's hand
  • In the inventory, combine the frame, blade and handle to make a hacksaw
  • Go to Mr. O. White's Apartment, which you'll have probably noticed before now is behind bars
  • Use the Hacksaw on the bars to make a way through
  • Enter Mr. O. White's Apartment and examine the board on the right
  • There follows a puzzle where a line will draw itself , and you have to click to change the direction of the arrow at each junction. When the line passes an arrow, a new one will spawn further on in the maze, which is the next one you'll have to turn.
  • So, in order, you need to face each arrow, and make them point as follows:
  • Right, right, down
  • right, down, left
  • right, right, down
  • up, left, down
  • down, down
  • This will complete the maze, and mean the end of Part 3. No need to dive this time...
